I have come through the snows. The power stayed on, the fridge was stuffed with food, and itinerant snow-shovellers knocked on the door at 7:30 this morning and dealt with the driveway and front walk, so I didn't have to. As M is recovering from hand surgery, I did NOT want to deal with 30" of snowfall on my own!

There have been a lot of articles written about Snowzilla. This one is the best:

The city is lost. For more than 24 hours, the sky has fallen on Washington, D.C., once considered the most powerful city in the world. Still it falls, in the form of tiny jagged ice crystals, which rain down in sheets on the capital of the free world. District delenda est.

The city is lost. Since yesterday afternoon, nature has reasserted its hold over the world of man. In a neighborhood called Cleveland Park—for that is something that human civilization once did; we claimed lands and gave them titles, we called these lands home, we called these lands ours—the fauna have returned.
